Compass Rose Academy was established in 2012 as a subsidiary of Josiah White’s, Indiana’s largest social services ministry with more than 160 years of experience serving troubled youth.
Compass Rose Academy is a Christian organization committed to enriching the lives of children and families through emotional healing, personal development, and spiritual growth. Compass Rose also provides hope for 14- to 18-year-old girls in crisis through services that challenge them to live lives of character, stability, and service.
Compass Rose Academy sits on 800 acres of land, of which 100 acres are currently in use. All are owned and maintained by Josiah White’s. The well-kept grounds include a softball field, ponds, woods and farmland in addition to an indoor activity center, gym, swimming pool and weight room.
Students live in a home with up to 8 other students and a set of Family Teachers. These staff members bond with the girls in their care while offering structure and guidance. Students learn personal responsibility, self-discipline and respect as they complete basic chores such as cooking and cleaning and learn what it means to enjoy time together as a “family.”
A Place to Heal…
A Place to Grow
To serve more students and families, Compass Rose Academy has built a campus environment that will increase residential capacity to 40 students. The new facility offers a multi-purpose building for hands-on instruction and make students feel more at home. Together, we hope to create a new place of healing and growth and many more success stories. Join us in being a part of the hope and transformation at Compass Rose.
Compass Rose Academy uses the therapeutic services of experienced professionals to provide students with individualized yet comprehensive care. Students receive counseling, education, spiritual guidance and the hands-on instruction they need to succeed in the world. In addition, we recognize that valuable learning takes place in teaching moments that can occur at any time. Our team is trained in creating, recognizing and utilizing these moments in everyday interactions with students.
